A Leap of Faith

Sometimes we are stuck in a rut, unable to move forward.  We don't like the rut, in fact it is miserable, and yet oddly comfortable because we are familiar and safe in our very own rut.  We know there's a road ahead, and we need to get out of our rut and move forward....but......the problem is, we can't see the road ahead, and we don't know what danger might be above or below us.  We know we must take a chance if we want to change, but we can only see small glimpses of the happiness that might be waiting for us on the other side.  It's all so uncertain and scary,  yet we know we will not be alone.  Friends and family who've been down the road tell us it is worth the effort.   And Someone wanting to help us, has put railings on each side of the road to keep us from falling off, and a bright white line down the middle to lead the way.  Others have done all they can to encourage and support us, but we must have the courage and faith to take that first step.
